Timeless Rapture

Never was there a cathedral cappella
holding such divine resonance,
touching the earth beneath my feet, 
as one tenderly touches another's skin, 
with loving strokes that meld a rhythm, 
uncounted, and eagerly invited as each 
next breath sustains sublime surrender 
to the timeless rapture of forest song, 
offering us connection, bathing us with life.
